Hospital building design[edit]

Through a design competition, Peking University International Hospital sought a design for a satellite facility in the growing suburbs. Perkins Eastman proposed a 280,000 square metres (3,000,000 sq ft), 12-story hospital for the 3-hectare (7.4-acre) parcel of land located about 32 km (20 mi) northwest of central Beijing.

To bring organization to a large site, the design team chose a circle inscribed inside a square as the overall design element. The landscaped square gives the site a defined border, and the circular ambulatory care and cancer center building harmoniously organize different large-scale program elements. The design reflects the three-part organization of the medical zone: patient care towers, outpatient ambulatory care wing, and medical technology space; and gives each portion a distinct and appropriate appearance. Patient bed towers are carefully sited to comply with requirements for direct exposure to the south to provide light and views.

The two-phase plan calls for 2,000 hospital beds, an ambulatory care center to serve 10,000 outpatients daily, and a large emergency department with adult and pediatric areas. Specialized services encompass centers for cardiovascular services, oncology, women’s and children’s services, and a conference center.[1]
